Sure beats the Raritan one but still kinda stinks. Has it improved over the last few years?

Bigshot,

The AC boat show is now held in the new convention center. In some ways, I like it better than NY. It is now a pretty large Boat Show. You coming north?

Current information for what it's worth.

The old Philadelphia Boat Show (downtown) was cancelled for 2003! It will be combined for the most part with the Atlantic City show. The new show owner which ran the old Philly show purchased the AC show this year.

There will be a Philadelphia Boat Exposition in Port Washington Expo Center which is just north of Philly off the PA turnpike Feb 13-16th which is supposed to be the replacement of the Pennsylvania Boat Show, however a different company is handling it and seriously doubt they can duplicate the old downtown show or offer anything near what the AC or Harrisburg show offered.

The AC has become or should say is becoming the premier winter boat show in the mid-Atlantic area. Talk is that it will surpass the NYC show this year in exhibitors and attendees.

The AC show has been going since '77 or '78! I think '98 saw it move into the new AC Expo Center which is huge and very nice compared to the old Convention Center.

I was there the 1st year it went to the new center....much better. It will not be hard to surpass the NYC show, man has that gone to pot.

I do not think I will be up there but one never knows. If you guys/gals want to be dazzled....come down for the Miami show in Feb I think.....holy cow! Don't even THINK of seeing 1/4 of it in one day.

I'll be there, as always, fun to drool. The Philly show just aint no good no more, but AC has been fun for last couple years. Prob. fun to coordinate attemdance a little bit as the date approaches, if possible. My personal habit has been to get as it opens on saturday.
